they dont do phone interview anymore, u should call call center and get an appointment date for interwiew!! its a group interwiew , 10-14 people , they ask same questions people and when its your turn you are answering.. Easy!! Mainly customer service questions..

I recently applied for the teller position online. They sent me an email telling me to call this 800 number so I could go through the screening process. I ended up not being able to call, but they called me anyway for a short phone interview. She then scheduled me for an interview next week. I'm a little nervous because I do not know what to expect. Is it a group interview for tellers as well?

I just got an email telling me to call some 800 number as well... u think they will call me back to schedule a face to face interview as well? Plus I was wondering if they were willing to hire me as a teller? though i have no previous experience working as a teller or for a bank.

Ok so I just got back from my interview. I think it went okay, but I felt that there were others in the group who were more experienced then i am, so we will see. She asked questions like what was our greatest achievement, when did i set a goal and accomplish it and how, and to give an example of when you provided great customer service. You just go around in a circle to answer the questions, pretty easy. If they want you back for a second interview they will call you that same day.
Good luck to everyone

Was your interview an hour and a half? That's what I was told that mine is. Kind of scary that it is so long! How much do they ask in that much time?

No, they haven't called me back yet :( I thought mine was a group interview, but it was actually a one on one interview with 3 different interviewers. And when I was done with one interviewer, someone else was called in to be interviewed by that person, and I was moved on to the next person to interview me. So, I saw 3 different Wells Fargo managers. I'm hoping to hear back soon; I really want the job.

How did yours go? Did you get a call Back?

Alexandra what position were you applying for?
I applied for the teller position, and my interviewer explained that first we went through a group interview, and the next step was to meet with the managers.
And thats too bad poppy, they've been good keeping me informed so far, and they're even trying to work my interviews around my school schedule.
Anyway i go in for my second interview on thursday hopefully so good luck guys!

I applied for a teller position. I actually applied a couple mondays ago, and was called a few hours after applying online by a specific branch, and called in for an interview later that interview. When I went in- I was interviewed by the lead teller, and then service manager. After that day of interviews, I had a phone screening, and then was scheduled the next week (last Thur) for an interview with 3 different managers. I was told that they would get back to me in 3-5 days(due to the need to investigate my background). I really got along with the service manager, so I called him today and asked him if he heard any feedback from my interview. He said I passed, and everyone is just waiting on my bckground info, and should hear back by the end of the week or so. Im keeping my fingers crossed!

WFA is a good place to work as long as you don't work in collections. They're collections department is HORRIBLE. Great pay, great benefits, plenty of PTO. I had PTO time a month after I started there :), and benefits start a month after employment. No room for advancement unless you want to be in banking, collections or mortgage.

Deborah I can't help you when it comes to personal banker questions because i applied for teller. (i had my first day in my branch yesterday)
The sort of questions they ask you are how you meet goals, your accomplishments, and your customer service skills, it wasn't too stressful
Good luck!

And kimberly, it might help if you read the posts before you to look for answers.

I just had a group interview today as a personal banker. I thought I did well I was one of the people who answered first willingly, but there were people who were alot more experienced than I was. How long does this process usually take? they said they will eitherend an email saing that I didn't get the job or I will have a 30 minute interview with a recruiter and if she feels that I am good for the job, then I will have an interview with the store manager, and if that goes well than I will have an interview with the district manager. I really hopethat I get this job. Can someone give me some feed back and advice please?? One advise to give is to answer first in a group interview. Answer as much as you can and make it sound good. everyone else in the interview will feed off your answer. They ask you questions like how competitve are you from a scale of 1-5 and why? What motivates you? How many customers do you think it takes to sell 7 products or accounts, and the right answer is 1. Always strive for the best and work as hard as you can with the customer. Build a relation with them. Why do you like to work in retail? If we call your current or previous supervisor, what would they say about you? Those are the ones that pop up on the top of my head, but that's about 70 percent of the group interview already. Will some one please give me feed back on what I should expect in my next interviews if I do get them. I really hope I do get this job. What do you guys think?

I had my group interview last week. The HR person said it would be one of about 3 interviews. We just went around the room (there was about 10 people) answering questions about a customer service insident and how we handled it. We also were asked our greatest accomplishment. We then did a group of how to promote "equity lines" in the bank and presentations. They look at all your paperwork to make sure that it is complete.

The advice i have to give everyone that is job hunting is too, stay positive,be sure of yourself and study what you are going to say with someone who is willing to help you. I learned a good lesson job hunting. The lesson is be confident, and when they asked you a question-look them right in thier eyes and sell your self,talk about you growing in your career with their company.

Hi everyone,

Here is a summary of my quest to get a job with Wells Fargo as a Teller so far:

6/16- I submitted an online application at WellsFargo.com.

6/17- I got a phone call from them for a phone interview. Simple questions, I did very well.

6/18 and 6/19 - I called them frequently and asked if there were any appointments/group interview slots available. They had nothing available but I kept on being persistent.

6/20- I called them again and this time, they scheduled me for a group interview for the coming Tuesday.

6/24- I went in for the group interview. 8 people, mostly young and inexperienced (but then again so was I). Paperwork, then introductions, then "skit" (selling a checking/savings account), then biggest accomplishment in life so far, then bounce...it took roughly 2 hours. We were told we would be getting a phone call if they were interested.

As of 6/28, no call yet. I'm pretty worried since I've invested so much time and energy in this whole journey, but then again, it's only been 4 days...I will keep you all updated!

If there is a lesson learned from my process so far, it's to be very very persistent and not to wait for them to call you. In a matter of 8 days, I was able to submit an application, get a phone interview, and go in for a group interview. If all goes well, I could start training sometime next week!

Hopefully, they will contact me soon. Wish me luck everyone!

Peace!

I just got back from the second interview.
I expected them to ask me to sell a product, but they did ask me what attracted me to a sales position, and was was unattarctive, and as for the unattractive, how would i deal with and work at it. They also asked me what I could bring to their team and what motivates me...I felt pretty confident in my responses... I did blank out at one point but they were nice about it.

After all was said and done, they asked if I had any questions, so I asked what is the next step as far as the hiring process is concerned. They said they would call me tomorrow!! (I'm assuming that is a good good goooood thing.)

hey guys i applied for the teller position about a month ago
it was weird they first sent me an email saying i didnt get it but then later on i got a call for a group interview.
so i went in for the group interview, and it happened to be a huge one. of about 20-22 people.
they didnt ask us any questions really, just about our schedule, a second language, and how many hours we'd like. all we had to do was fill out an application pretty much.
about 3 business days later i got a phone call asking to come into a interview with 3 service manager.
they were sooo nice and made you feel very comfortable.
asked you questions about customer service like "have you ever been in a situation where...." bunch of those! i got a call less than 24 hours later saying i got the teller position! everyone was sooo nice and it was a lot easier than i expected. i went into it very nervous and doubtful. but they really make you feel right at home :]

GOOD LUCK!

Revvy, I also applied at Bank of America and they sent me a rejection email! So I was suprised that I actually heard back from Wells Fargo being as they are more conservative, and seemingly more strict with their requirements. Congrats on your new job! :)

I've been unemployed for six months so all of this is making me quite nervous! lol.

Wow! They called! They are forwarding my information to one of the downtown branches where one of the service managers will be in touch. (I primarily wanted to work downtown bc with public transportation, downtwon is a straight shot, where as the branch I interviewed with, I'd have to take the light rail, subway and a bus to get there.) I believe I will have to interview with them, but at this point it will be a piece of cake. :D

heyyy everyone,

so i've been following up on this forum and i think i've learned quite a bit about wells fargo. i went in for my group interview this last friday - they said they'd give us a call by wednesday.. soo i'm just in the waiting process.

i wondered if it was normal that they didn't give any of us a contact number? if worse comes to worse, i'd want to call to follow-up but no number to contact.

any suggestions?
